Jaguar Formula E driver James Calado will be forced to miss at least two of the six races at the Berlin Templehof Circuit next week due to a clash with his commitments in the World Endurance Championship with Ferrari AF Corse GT3 Team.

The WEC season will resume at Circuit de Spa Francorchamps on August 15, with Calado required for first practice on August 13.

So due to the double-header format of the Formula E races means he will have to miss the Formula E races in Berlin on August 12 and 13.

This will be Calado’s last races with Jaguar after it was confirmed that the British team has signed Sam Bird to join season six championship challenger Mitch Evans for the 2020-2021 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

WEC has now shuffled its schedule so that there is only one free practice session on Thursday, so it is understood that other drivers competing in both championships (Antonio Felix Da Costa, Sebastien Buemi and Alex Lynn) will be able to compete in all Berlin races before travelling to Belgium.

Panasonic Jaguar Racing have recently signed Tom Blomqvist as its new reserve driver to replace Alex Lynn who was drafted in at Mahindra Racing to replace Pascal Wehrlein who departed for Porsche Racing.

Blomqvist contested six Formula E events for Andretti FE Team during the 2017-18 season and achieved a best finish of eighth at Marrakesh.

Calado heads to the final six races at Berlin Templehof Circuit sixteenth in the championship on ten points while Panasonic Jaguar Racing find themselves third in the teams standings.
